Smurfette (original French name Schtroumpfette) is one of the main characters of the Smurfs comic book series and cartoon show. Smurfette was created by Gargamel, which explains her original position as the only female Smurf in the village.
Why She LA LA LA LA LA LA SINGS A HAPPY SONG
- Even though she was being created by the evil warlock, Gargamel, this doesn't stop her from trying be like all the other real Smurfs.
- She can be very kind, sweet, adventurous and optimistic.
- Her design is both adorable and beautiful.
- She’s part of the most memorable of The Smurf characters in the entire franchise (along with Papa, Brainy, Jokey and Clumsy).
- Despite not being a real Smurf, she and all the others consider herself a real one like she’s truly one of them.
- She’s also willing to face life-threatening conflicts to save her friends, as shown in Smurfs: The Lost Village where she literally sacrificed her own life to save all the other Smurfs.
- Many of the voice actresses through the years did a great job voicing her, especially Lucille Bliss. Berange McNeese is the current voice actress of the character, as of the recent 2021 series.
- Her personality changed for the cartoon show, making her feel like she belongs in the Smurf Village rather than leaving as in the pre-1981 comic stories. She also contributed in merchandise for little girls and ended speculation that Smurfs were gay.
- It got even better in the 2021 series, where she becomes more of a strong female character than what she was portrayed previously. In "Smurf-Fu", she learned how to defend herself using kung-fu fighting techniques fit for a Smurf.
- Annie Anderson looks like Smurfette. Instead of being a female Smurf, Annie/Smurfette is reimagined design as a 5.9 foot tall female women and half a real Smurf form hybrid that is a cross between Jenny Wakeman (XJ-9), Thea Stilton (Geronimo Stilton), Samantha "Sam" (Harry and His Bucket Full of Dinosaurs), Juniper "June" Kim Lee, Jennifer "Jenny" Foxworth, and Smurfette (2021 Smurfs show) as well as some features of the goddess of the forest.
- Her appearance in the remake closely resembles Bliss's a teenager, having much wider hips and longer legs but with Thea's tall, slender, Sam's fair skin and wears a pink jacket with white insides and a yellow button on each of the upturned collar tips, Jenny's crop top, Jenny Foxworth's blue eyes, and blue jeans, DeeDee's hair is up in her trademarks but her hair looks like Juniper's hair which almost reaches her waist, complimented by a pink wisp running down the rest of her hair from the both sides of where her hairline starts.
- In the 1980s cartoon, she tends to get overly weepy whenever something goes wrong. And in some of the episodes, she is portrayed as the stereotypical damsel-in-distress despite being a strong female character.
- The original comics prior to 1981, initially portrayed her as a talkative and flawless one-off character who serves no purpose to the plot and only existed to seduce the male Smurfs.
- Like the other male Smurfs, she tends to do questionable acts that make them feel more dangerous than humans.
- In The episode, Smurfette's Rose, she got so mad at Sassette for not watering her flowers, also she shouted "WHY DON'T YOU JUST SMURF BACK TO WHEREVER YOU CAME FROM" which made Sassette feel sad, and mean spirited
- Not only she gets so angry at Sassette for not watering her flowers, she, along with the other Smurfs threatened to beat up Grandpa Smurf in the Season 7 episode "Chlorhydris' Lost Love" when Grandpa Smurf sprays water at them with the Fire Brigade
- Much like Beverly Marsh from Stephen King’s IT, she has the trope of being the only female in her group and having almost every male character attracted to her.
